I have two movies (which I own) that I ripped using Mac the Ripper and play flawlessly using my Mac DVD Player app. I have stored copies of these two movie folders in a folder named “Movies” on my Time Machine and am able to access these movies with my Apple TV using SMB sharing. However, when I try to play them, after a second or two I get the apple logo, signifying a restart of some kind. I have read other posts and have switched back and forth between mPlayer and Quicktime, as well as enabled “Use DVD chapters” option, but I still get a restart. Using Smart Installer I get the message that all has been installed. I am using an Apple TV Take 2 with the latest ATVflash software (3.4, i think).
What can I do to get these movies to play?
